BLOKES AND DANCE PERFORMANCE

FAC_logo- 2012 1Blokes is a new dance work investigating the myths, truths and the stereotypes of how to be a man in our society.

Dance artists Matt Cornell and Joshua Thomson are drawing on their experiences during speed-apprenticeships with men in the extreme north and their own history growing up in outback Australia. These stories, physicality and no-nonsense approach functions in their show to make space around the notion of what it is to be a man.

Key in the artistic process is the involvement of blokes themselves – while further developing the work in Frankston, they will work with the Pine’s Men’s Shed and other community groups as they continue on their quest to capture the humour, bravado and fragility of the Aussie ‘bloke’.

When: Friday 25 November, 9.30pm
Where: Shipping container – Frankston Library Forecourt, 60 Playne Street, Frankston

PLEIN AIR – GROUND ZERO

Hugh Mackay and Brett Jackson are currently lighting up the back paddock studio in Somerville with some stunning works that they have created from their ‘plein air roamings’ across the Peninsula over the last 12 months.

They have called it Ground Zero… created in situ, usually in 1-2 hours it is an immediate response to the place and time of making.  Sites are chosen at random from the Mornington Peninsula and Dandenong Ranges and not seen as an end in themselves but as a starting point, ‘a ground zero’ of creative inquiry.  The time frame adds an explosive factor of nuclear proportions to the work.  Back Paddock Studio is very excited to host their first collaborative exhibition.
